Styling A Suit For Day

When you hear the work suit, you might think that it’s only appropriate for dressed up events. However, you can transform a suit for a day look by pairing it with casual pieces that will contrast the buttoned-up feel.

The white sneaker trend seems to be sticking around, and they work beautifully at giving this plaid suit a casual daytime look. Really you could choose any sneakers to get the same feel. Even the new trend of dad sneakers will work nicely if you’re so inclined!

The layer under the suit is also a big factor to determine how dressed up this suit is. I went with a clean and classic white crew neck t-shirt to complement the white sneakers. You could also go with a more trendy graphic tee for an edgy outfit. Just stay away from silks, velvets or satin that all give an elevated feel.

Wear Separately

Lastly, for more versatility, don’t be afraid to separate these pieces for more cute outfits! Read more styling a plaid blazer here.

The Lagree Studio Her Fashioned Life

The Lagree Studio

If you follow my Instagram stories, you know that I’m at The Lagree Studio quite often. I have been going to THE LAGREE STUDIO since they opened up at their Galleria location (they now have three locations) in January of 2015.  I wanted to share this fantastic workout with you because it is a part of my exercise regimen. Using the megaformer at The Lagree Studio is super intense, to say the least. The only challenge is that the class doesn’t get any easier, and that’s why it’s so good!

In just a 45 min workout session, you will get a high-intensity, full-body workout with no impact on your joints or spine. However, don’t forget that it’s not easy. This is the same workout that celebrities turn to such as Mark Wahlberg, Meghan Markle, and Victoria Secret models.

Slow Movement = Quick Results

The results you will see in your body such as core strength & booty lift are going to come from having constant tension on your muscles to the point of failure, so they will literally start to shake. This is the best because it means your body is changing! Did I mention the burn?

It’s about the tempo – the slower it is, the more muscles will activate.

Know Before You Go:

Sign up in advance, as class size is limited. If you are new, arrive 15 minutes before class starts to go over the proper use of the megaformer.

What To Bring & Wear:

Long leggings with tops that are not constricting. Try to avoid loose-fitting clothing. Grip socks are required and can be purchased there if you need. Bring water and a workout towel, so you’re ready to sweat.

What To Expect In The Class:

There are several different types of classes; all described here on their website. Some will have a machine called a Versa Climber added for more fat-burning cardio. However, all classes will have great music and a motivating instructor. The instructor will walk around the room and gently help you with your form if they see a problem with it. Small changes to your movement are everything in this workout! I love having all the help I can get, as this ensures a safe and effective workout.

Constent Tension – Fast Transtions – Slow Movements

Founder and Owner Valentina Gaylord’s primary mission in opening THE LAGREE STUDIO was to provide a place where her clients could come to not only get into the best shape of their lives, but to rehabilitate their bodies, revitalize their souls and embrace and recapture their passion for life, love, health, and wellness. The inspiration for the studio came easily as she watched her husband, Olympic Gold Medalist Mitch Gaylord, constantly working to rehabilitate his body after a successful, but vigorous career, find relief in the Lagree Method while still living in California. That paired with her own experience with the effectiveness of the method solidified their passion for the workout, and when they moved to Austin, they knew they needed to share this revolutionary workout with everyone!


Valentina has kindly agreed to answer some questions below.

What is The Lagree Method?

This HIIT, Strength Training and Pilates-Inspired workout utilizes the Lagree Fitness Megaformer and the VersaClimber to effectively combine Strength, Endurance, Balance, Core, Mobility and Cardiorespiratory training, not only in one session but in each and every move. It is intense on the muscles, but low to zero impact and safe on the joints, spine, and connective tissues.

How often should a person go to get results?

If a client is looking to lose weight, sculpt and tone their body, we suggest taking 3 – 5 classes per week combined with our Leaner with Lagree Guidebook for rapid results.  We have seen our clients lose 12 – 18 pounds and over 20 total body inches in their first month and over 50 pounds in 4 months.

If a client is looking to sculpt and tone their body, we suggest 2 – 3 times per week.  The results will come quickly and are easy to maintain using our method.

Is this workout good for all fitness levels? Would LaGree be a good tool to rehab injuries?

Yes, this is an exceptional workout for people of all ages and all fitness levels including all stages of pregnancy. 

We have clients with double knee replacements, hip replacements, and back issues that are regaining their strength, balance, and range of motion.  All of our instructors go through extensive training before they begin teaching at our studios.  Our Instructors are all Level One and Advanced Level Two trained and are trained by certified Master Trainers to offer our clients injury specific modifications, functional movement, and postural alignment to ensure mobility and balance as we age. 

Our Megaformer and VersaClimber combination classes are designed to burn over 1200 calories in 50 minutes and to alleviate stress from the body and immune system, which is an excellent combination for clients with autoimmune diseases.

You also offer the InBody 570 body analysis. Tell us more about that.

Yes, we offer the InBody 570.  The InBody 570 goes beyond traditional body composition analysis.  It not only analyzes how much fat and muscle you have, but it also measures your Total Body Water and divides it into Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water – values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness or fitness contexts.

With these water values, we can identify and track inflammation, swelling, and even injuries with ECW/TBW Analysis while monitoring how this ratio changes over time with the Body Composition History chart.

Do you offer an introductory price and random special prices?

Yes, we have three introductory offers for our new clients.  We offer a first class for $25, the first week for $49 and a first month of unlimited access for $169.  Throughout the year, we will offer specials online for new clients and students.

Hope to see you in class soon!

Split Hem Denim

Truth be told, I’ve never been a fan of split hem denim. However, when I tried these jeans on at Austin’s own LuxRox Boutique, I instantly was hooked! I styled them with these fun patent leather, retro heels that I have worn a ton over the years. I love how the seam in the front of the pants along with the split hem exposing the ankle slims your leg by elongating it! Adding the heel brings it up a notch to “legs for days!”

Then I added an oh so soft silk blush top with a burgundy color moto jacket that is gorgeous and luxe! The texture play is perfection combining suede, leather, and silk! I also haven’t stopped wearing these earrings since I bought them. The pearl at the bottom is a chic pop of neutral color that I love.

Elevating A Casual Outfit To Austin Chic

I live in a very casual city, that I completely love, Austin Tx. This beautiful city has a very laid back, casual feel and an artsy vibe. Because of this, my daily outfits have destroyed denim and sneakers on repeat! However, some occasions call for an Austin (change to your city) Chic outfit. Then I always as myself, well what exactly is Austin Chic? It’s kinda hard to nail down, but I always try to keep it simple, understated and add a bit of luxe to my outfit.

Keeping it simple but significate is always my top priority when dressing.

Let me break down how to elevate a casual everyday outfit for a chic look you can wear to a ladies brunch, or any daytime, early evening event.

Elevate Casual outfit to Chic look Her Fashioned Life

For this casual but chic look, I have a monochrome ribbed cashmere set on.  Dressing with monochrome pieces is always a quick way to get to a chic outfit. Choosing this ribbed cashmere fabric gives a very luxe feel!  I layered on a  black military jacket with edgy details to add interest. Just tossing the jacket over my shoulders is my favorite way to wear outerwear.

Adding the modern snakeskin bag also adds interest. I love the clean lines, and the gorgeous print with a touch of color breaks up the monochrome ensemble. This crossbody bag has a rose gold chain that is stunning!

Shoes

I always say your shoes will set the tone for your entire outfit. That is why when putting together outfits, I usually start with shoe choice. If you switched my Chanel mules out for white sneakers, you have a completely different casual look.

That said, if you go with a feminine dress or a silk midi skirt, wearing an unexpected sneaker can work also. The contrast will play nicely, and your overall look will be very chic. If you want to wear a sneaker that day go for it, just build an outfit around your shoe choice that will work with what you’re going to do.
